THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will consider next steps for improving welfare and safety in sport, both at elite and grassroots level.
It will be an opportunity to assess the progress made so far in implementing the recommendations of the Duty of Care in Sport Review led by Baroness Grey-Thompson, and to consider what further action might be needed across the sports sector.
Delegates will assess priorities for improving staff and athlete welfare in high performance sport - looking at what more might be done to tackle abuse and bullying, develop good governance and scrutiny, and support elite transition.
Attendees will also consider the extent to which the Government’s new Mental Health and Elite Sport Action Plan sufficiently addresses issues around mental welfare and possible next steps for its delivery.
Further sessions will look at opportunities to develop standardised safeguarding services, enhance sports leadership, promote best practice, and improve education and training provisions; as well as considering what further policy support might be needed to help grassroots sport in meeting organisational and resource challenges.
